Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Front Page -

It’s said good things come in threes – and that’s cer­tainly true of Kylie Minogue, who to­day be­comes the first per­son to grace the cover of Stel­lar three times. As well as be­ing an iconic Aus­tralian per­son­al­ity, it’s the quiet tenac­ity of the 50-year-old su­per­star that makes her such a, well, Stel­lar woman. “It’s been a crazy, busy year. But I’ve had crazy, busy years that were not as suc­cess­ful,” she ad­mits. “But you have to keep try­ing.” As she caps off a hugely suc­cess­ful 12 months – both per­son­ally and pro­fes­sion­ally – it’s a tes­ta­ment to Minogue’s hu­mil­ity that she told us she was chuffed to make her third Stel­lar ap­pear­ance. “Wow, thanks Stel­lar,” she told writer Cameron Adams. “It’s such a pop­u­lar mag­a­zine, so that is an amaz­ing hon­our. I can’t wait to see and read it.” COVER STORY 08 The year of liv­ing fab­u­lously Ahead of her re­turn to Aus­tralia with her lat­est tour, Kylie Minogue tells Stel­lar about the ex­cit­ing events of the past 12 months – in­clud­ing a new re­la­tion­ship with Welsh­man Paul Solomons, re­unit­ing with old friends and “tak­ing own­er­ship” of turn­ing 50.

12 “Moral­ity isn’t de­fined by cloth­ing” Dr Su­san Car­land speaks can­didly with Stel­lar on ev­ery­thing from re­li­gion to how she han­dles crit­ics – and the bru­tal smack­down she de­liv­ered to fu­ture hus­band Waleed Aly when he first asked her out.

16 “I just like noise” He’s one of the most well-known ra­dio hosts in Aus­tralia, but with baby num­ber three on the way Tim Black­well says he is at his hap­pi­est when he’s at home with wife Monique and their kids. 04 David Camp­bell ad­mits to be­ing a born-again monar­chist due to the Roy­als 2.0. 06 Q&A Neneh Cherry: “You are beau­ti­ful… go tell your story.” 18 Fash­ion Soft tai­lored linens for the warmer weather. 20 Beauty How to keep one step ahead of adult acne. 22 Liv­ing Neale Whi­taker ap­pre­ci­ates a well-made bed. 24 Travel The per­fect beach break in By­ron Bay. 26 Os­car Cainer Stars. 27 Life ad­vice Chef Shoji Toru on why hard work and loy­alty bring just desserts. Ge­orge Calom­baris joins the team to share the hottest global eats.

To be or not to be? This seems to be the ques­tion that has re­cently shuf­fled its way back into the nar­ra­tive of our harsh, dry land.

It was not all that long ago that an his­toric ref­er­en­dum m di­vided this coun­try. Back then, 1999 felt very dif­fer­ent nt to the song an­other Prince e had served us. We were headed to­wards the turn of the cen­tury. A new be­gin­ning as a na­tion. Y2K was loom­ing. Dial-up was king. One had to won­der to one­self, would the monar­chy pre­vail or, as the Pur­ple One sang, would it be party over, oops out of time?

I voted for the repub­lic back then. It seemed sen­si­ble. Like grow­ing up and leav­ing home, which I had done that decade. cade. I won­dered how ex­cit­ing it would be if we did the same. me.

Still, de­spite our sup­posed sed de­sire to leave the Wind­sors ors be­hind, we de­cided to give e the Com­mon­wealth an­other her shot, though the re­sult was tight. ht. Cut to 2018 and the repub­lic move­ment was back. And gain­ing mo­men­tum. This time it was track­ing bet­ter than ever b be­fore. I was less pas­sion­ate about it as I’d been as a young man. Inst In­stead of a pow­er­ful de­sire to strike o out, I was more in­clined t to think, “Yeah, nah, ye yeah, why not?” Li Lit­tle did Peter Fitz Fitzsi­mons’s redb ban­dana led move­ment know at the time that we w would be at­tacked. In In­fil­trated. Dis­armed to the point of gidd giddy weak­ness. It was the “yoy­als”. They got bet­ter. Younger. Cute Cuter. There was no hope for us. Sure Kate and Wills were nice, but then they brought that lit­tle Ge­orge down her here with his adorable bilb bilby-lov­ing face. Give him a sis­ter? Amaz­ing! Let h her be sassy to the med me­dia at a wed­ding? We want to adopt her. By the time Harry a and his new bride Meghan ar­rived in Aus­tralia last month on their first of­fi­cial tour as a mar­ried cou­ple, I’ll ad­mit it, I was weak. Then they told us they were hav­ing a baby. Viva la Com­mon­wealth!

Now I couldn’t care less about the repub­lic. I mean look… it’s Roy­als 2.0. I have to see how this turns out. I want them to be a part of our lives. Don’t you? It works for Canada and they have that cool guy in charge who seems very In­sta­grammable.

Harry for Gover­nor- Gen­eral? Sure! Why not? Wills for Min­is­ter of He­li­copters? Go on. Give Meghan her own tele­vi­sion show again? Now we’re cook­ing.

Sorry, Pete. Maybe next time. David co-hosts To­day Ex­tra, 9am week­days, on the Nine Net­work.
